Post by Swifto on Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:23 pm

Open your music player of choice, add all your music, hit "shuffle", and hit next.
Now, let's generate a character from some of those songs.
Either go with the theme of the song or with your gut feeling upon hearing the song.

NORMAL MODE
  • 1st song - Setting
  • 3nd song - Race
  • 5th song - Class
  • 6th song - Character Theme Song
  • 7th song - If you have a minon/sidekick/companion, their theme.


HARD MODE
  • 9th song - Backstory
  • 11th song - Motivation
  • 13th song - Drawback/Failing


NIGHTMARE MODE
  • 15th song - Personal Philosophy
  • 18th song - Moral Code

Just off the top of my head mine's looking like a Tiefling or Hellbred (Breaking Away) Paladin (Templars of Steel) with some time-travel ability (E=MC^2) with a Druid companion (Mother Earth) in a fiendish campaign (Planet Hell).

Grew up in a "survival of the fittest" region (Nightside of Eden), searching for a conspiracy (The Truth is Out There) but prone to getting attached to people then getting them hurt, killed, or traumatized (Moonlight). Knows s/he only has so long before their enemies catch up to them, and is always making preparations and seemingly paranoid (7 Days to the Wolves). Well-meaning and dependable, but has a weird sense of humor and seemingly odd priorities (Heavy Metal Jesus).

I've got a Lawful something or other (Discord), likely Paladin or Cavalier (Stand My Ground, Iron Knight), likely Tiefling or something else like to get pitchfork'd (Mob Song) with a very dependable sidekick (Man of the Hour) looking for love (Uptown Girl).

I guess?

(I mostly guess I'm glad I didn't get Swan Lake in there...)

NORMAL MODE
  • 1st song - Setting
    Megaman Legends 2 - Nino Ruins
  • 3nd song - Race
    Iced Earth - Wolf
  • 5th song - Class
    Megadeth - Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!
  • 6th song - Character Theme Song
    Archenemy - My Apocalypse
  • 7th song - If you have a minon/sidekick/companion, their theme.
    Castlevania - Lament of Innocence - Destructive God From the Past


So... In a world half underground and half underwater, there lives a Lycanthrope Assassin, living and working only to fuel his own inevitable self-destruction. To give him moral support is the groaning voice of an eldritch god, long buried under the ground, whose yawning voice can only be heard by this guy.

HARD MODE
  • 9th song - Backstory
    Van Halen - Runnin' With the Devil
  • 11th song - Motivation
    Castlevania - Wicked Child
  • 13th song - Drawback/Failing
    Gamma Ray - Short As Hell


...So growing up, this guy was made fun of by halflings and gnomes for his height, on top of hearing this elder god's voice in his head all his life. As such, being the victim of such bullying, the ancient deity guided him to safety when the bullying got more violent. Guided by this voice, he ran and he ran, escaping them repeatedly, until one day, in his adulthood, he came across a very forgiving woman. They fell in love, and bore a child.
But the elder god had a deal with this guy. Part of the deal for helping him run for safety all these years was that the elder god would be possess his first born child.
And that is exactly what he did.

NIGHTMARE MODE
  • 15th song - Personal Philosophy
    Behemoth - Hell Dwells In Ice
  • 18th song - Moral Code
    Blind Guardian - Bright Eyes (Acoustic)


He cares not for the evil that exists within humanity and its mortal ilk. He knows... The true evil in this world lies in a region so far north and frozen that it is encased entirely in ice. He knows that it lives, he knows that it's been speaking to him. He, and only he... By comparison, mortals aren't such a bad sort.
They're just a gathering of fools.
Walking amongst them, he thinks Fool, just another. Fool, just another...

Setting - "Boiling Led" by Falconer
Race - "Elvenpath" by Nightwish
Class - "Broken" by Sonata Arctica
Character Theme - "I Walk Alone" by Iced Earth
Sidekick - N/A

Backstory - "Eclipse" by Nightwish
Motivation - "Counterstrike" by Sabaton
Drawback/Failing - "Led Astray" by Sirenia

Philosophy - "Light in the Black" by Sabaton
Moral Code - "States of Matter" by Avantasia

Loner (I Walk Alone) Elf (Elvenpath; seriously this is probably the only song that'll get me to play an Elf) Blight/Reincarnated Druid (Broken) in a gritty medieval campaign centering on life in a cruel fiefdom (Boiling Led). Part of a nocturnal clan that disdains the day, perhaps due to being hunted by daylight by humans and preferring nighttime as a result (Eclipse).

Keeps getting distracted by failures, interruptions, poor fortune, and misjudgements (Led Astray). Is motivated by vengeance and retribution for prior defeats (Counterstrike). Regardless never gives up hope completely (Light in the Black). Moral code is near nonexistent, and other than pursuing her vengeance she simply seems to be in it for whatever stimulation, entertainment, and experiences s/he can withstand (States of Matter).

He's developed a very very paranoid mindset.

Antarctic campaign. Obliv's favorite! Aasimar Inquisitor, bit of a grump, paired with a somewhat manic Strix Oracle. Has a lost love from a plague for which she is sent to find a cure. She is not very patient with this, however, and will act often on impulse. A bit self-centered in many respects but very capable of shelving personal issues to reach a greater goal.

Setting - "Celtic Myst" by Epica
Race - "Hell is thy Home" by Gamma Ray
Class - "Snow" by Kamelot
Character Theme - "Twilight Tavern" by Ensiferium
Sidekick - "Blind Evil" by Dream Evil

Backstory - "No Dream Can Heal a Broken Heart" by Sonata Arctica
Motivation - "Back in Control" by Sabaton
Drawback/Failing - "Shy" by Sonata Arctica

Philosophy - "Where the Rain Grows" by Helloween
Moral Code - "Our Solemn Hour" by Within Temptation

A shy (Shy), alcoholic (Twilight Tavern) Tiefling (Hell is thy Home) assassin (Snow) in a Myst campaign (Celtic Myst). Accompanied by a ruthless but shortsighted devil (probably an Imp) meant to keep them on the dark side (Blind Evil), their duty is to remove enemy leaders to subvert the opposition, and regain command of the region (Back in Control).

Their past is filled with suffering and heartache (No Dream), and they have never thought themselves worthy of reaching for or aspiring to higher goals (Where the Rain Grows). They do what they must, regardless of whether they think it right or not, because it must be done (Our Solemn Hour).

That's depressing.

Dhampir (Rose for the Dead) Witch (The Coming Curse) in a Wheel of Time campaign (Turn the Page). Betrayed by lovers and masters alike (Dark Saga), her lone loyal companion is a shadow-touched, phantom- and fiend-haunted dream mage (The Lucid Door).

A crusader despite her strangeness (Bring the Hammer Down), and in spite of multiple betrayals and disappointments still remains loyal to her cause and her leaders (Love is Blind): she sees this as the only way to make up for sins of her past (What Have You Done?). She wants to leave behind a memorable legacy (Something for the Ages), despite the fact that she will live a long, probably unpleasant life in defiance of dark powers (Forever is a Long Time).

Her many lives have allowed her to see the rise and fall of civilizations and cultures, some of which she is to blame for or failed to stop (Jillian). She makes it her duty to track down evildoers, deadly creatures, and servants of the Crimson King (The Hunter), but tends to be less judicious and more zealous than she probably should (Let the Hammer Fall). Despite her well-meaning nature, views people who aren't immortal like her partner or constantly reborn like herself as perpetual children doomed to sad, meaningless lives, and utterly reliant on those like her to give their lives purpose and pleasure (The Toy Master); she knows that eventually her multiple existences will come to an end, and the world will either be worse off for her vanishing or have to be handed over to someone else she can trust to do the job, and she feels when she goes it will be in a blaze of glory against evil itself, perhaps as fiendish as facing the Crimson King directly (Farewell).

Dang, I like this character. I'd play her. Doubly so in a Dark Tower campaign.

    Asterix - Rome
  • 3nd song - Race
    Plants vs. Zombies - Zombies On Your Lawn
  • 5th song - Class
    Shadow of the Colossus - Swift Horse
  • 6th song - Character Theme Song
    Okami - Competition With Idaten
  • 7th song - If you have a minon/sidekick/companion, their theme.
    Castle Crashers - Winterbliss


HARD MODE
  • 9th song - Backstory
    Castlevania Judgement - An Empty Tome
  • 11th song - Motivation
    Nitronic Rush - Storm On the Horizon
  • 13th song - Drawback/Failing
    Ducktales - The Moon


NIGHTMARE MODE
  • 15th song - Personal Philosophy
    Mount and Blade - Reluctant Hero
  • 18th song - Moral Code
    Serious Sam III - Boss Fight Strings


huh.

So, in Ancient Rome... An undead (though I like plant person more, ah well) Giantslayer that rides a horse right into the fray of battle. To him, everything is a challenge. It's all a game to improve himself, and he does it all with a smile on his face. With him is a small knight with a helmet so large it blocks his entire face and muffles all his speech. Plucky little guy, though.

And so one day, somehow, the undead guy loses his memories. Never remembering anything much, but knows there's worse things in the future. Still, despite that, he is reluctant to do anything about it. He just wants to tend to his garden... He eventually goes, though, armed with cannons held in his arms.



I'm not very good at this game.
